    I got off 5 shots with the long 88. 3 bounced top hull, 1 bounced lower hull, last bounced turret
    cant aim for hull, have to hit turret
    Tiger P was one of the tanks i had the most fun with

    Insanely jealous. How does the T28 fair? My T25 AT seems pretty solid and I like the damage the big gun puts out, but it's front armor is just so pathetic.
    I hope you don't mind losing all of that T25 speed. On the bright side, the T28 can actually bounce most shots from the front, and while the 105 eats credits, the 120 isn't nearly as bad.

    It still seems unfair given that the tiger P can pen me at any part of my frontal armor


    Why the hell is the tiger a tier 7 anyway? It doesn't have the armor for this shit.
    it does actually, it's just all flat and everything at that point has +100 pen guns.

    Finally finished the grind to my T95, I've been playing American tanks exclusively until now (except for my T-50). Green = tanks I currently own.

    Where to from here?
    bleh, you will think you like the T20 with the 90 and all that jazz but really it's pretty shitty

    This guy was in his fully upgraded Lorraine 40t, and he said he was going to protect our arty, so I called him a dumbass, so he threatened to 1v1 duel me, then when he moved up he asked arty to follow him along.

    i really think it should go down a tier like the panther. Tiger at T6 with the short 88 would kick a fair amount of ass, especially since the KV3 is going to T7. Heavy tanks should not have the best guns, honestly. Heavies should excel in armor but have mediocre firepower and rely on TDs and mediums to destroy other heavy tanks.

    Hell, could even make the Tiger tier 5. Put the 3601 as tier 6, and P as tier 7. The tiger was a fair match for the KV1 on occasion.

    I might be a really bad player, but to be honest I find it just horrible.

    You are a snack for arty. Hummels twoshot you, while you are slow as fuck so there is basically no way to avoid them, except getting to cover and camping there all match.

    The frontal armor gets penetrated by T8 heavies like, half of the time, and two thirds of time by T9 heavies, and everything with precise enough gun can penetrate the cupolas.

    If anything tier 5 and up gets to your side, you can quit the game. You are long as fuck and turn slowly, so there is no way to out-turn the flanker, and your sides and ass are paper.

    You get engine damaged from frontal shots, you get set on fire by pretty much every second hit to ass.

    Seriously, it's one of the worst experiences I ever had in this game, and I admit, I don't have the 120mm yet, which might make it slightly more bearable, but it's combination of HORRIBLE speed and not so great armor is murderous.

    Edited:

    I want to point out I really enjoyed T25.

    Tell me your secrets, awesomecaek


    I have only penetrated that thing frontally like ten times throughout my whole history of encountering it (not much) and the only weakspot seems to be the weeny little cupolas that stick out the top


    Edited:

    ...Although I admit I haven't really taken the time to aim at anything else

    I actually have 47% win rate still having the 105mm, so I guess it could go well over 50% with the 120, but I have to say that the tank is still pain and makes me fear getting the T95, as that will be only even slower.

    Still better than an ISU-152. Inaccurate gun, no armor anywhere at all, slow as fuck turns slow as fuck, shit view range, shit camo rating. I still can't find the advantage of this tank and I can tell it will get worse with the 704.

    I have no idea. I just have IS-3 popping out of cover, going HERP, and penetrating the lower hull (where the gearbox is). T9 heavies just send shells through the upper hull, right next to the mantlet.

    I know it shouldn't happen, I agree that I myself ding them quite frequently, but my T28 is either faulty or I have really shit tier luck.

    your T28 is faulty, the only T8 heavy that was able to consistently frontally penetrate me was the Lowe

    The T82 is pretty fun to drive but dunno if I should waste time on it or go directly to the next one.

    Edited:

    Mounting a 105mm on what is pretty much a jeep with tracks seems like a very dakka thing to do though.

    Get the gun. IS-3 will be terrible without it, you need it during the grind to the BL-9.

    Lowe is probably the worst take to take on the offense. They're pretty much the easiest thing to snipe and their only real use is defense. If you get them behind good cover they're pretty amazing but outside of that...

    Edited:

    Ahh no I guess they're fine on the offense if they have other tanks with them. They're terrible alone

    Lowe is just an upgraded Tiger, just your typical German sniper tank that very few people knows how to play properly.

    Seriously Wargaming? Fuck you. Fuck you. My Jagdpanther already doesn't earn any money, because it shoots compressed silver rounds, so now it's going to loose money even if I win.

    The T20 plays like a light tank with a big ass gun, while the E8 is more of a decent all-arounder medium that kills other mediums dead. I liked both but yeah, T20 more.
    Though worth mentioning that the T20 is not as good as the VK3002DB aka "The Daimler"

    I don't know why, but the devs seem to want to make the game more world of heavies tank. Outside a light tank, and a few mediums or TD's for a specific purpose, it seems to be that tier 10 heavies and tier 8 arty is the way to go.
